Designers Love ROYGBIV

At the Couture jewelry show in Las Vegas this past spring, designers were embracing color in new ways – often using many colors of the rainbow in a single piece. A case in point is Paris-based Marie Mas, whose multi-hued Swinging Stones change color ways as they move with the wearer’s body.
